Attitude

Attitude and The 3 Little Pigs?

Attitude is one of the most important word in our language… the magic word that determines your lot in life.

Countless studies show that it is your attitude toward life that determines your level of success in life.

The number one thing that shapes your life and mould’s your thinking is your attitude.

Your attitude toward life...your attitude toward learning...you attitude toward taking action...yourself...change...success,.

Every aspect of your life is a direct result of you attitude toward your life.

Take the 3 Little Piggies, they new if they didn't take action the Big Bad Wolf would be eating well tonight. 

They had a sense of urgency, they knew that if they didn't get to work they would get eaten. So they went to work and did what need to be done...good attitude.

One built a house of straw... the other sticks... the last of bricks, what would have happened if they had a lay back attitude? Well I think you know...roast anyone?

What was the first step?... they were taught or learnt how to build a house.

What is your attitude toward learning?

Do you love learning new things or is yours the attitude that... you can't teach an old dog and new trick...or you can lead a horse but the dumbass  won’t drink... or do you just hate it!

The 3 little piggies did what they had to do and learnt what they needed to learn  in order to survive.

Are you learning what you need in order to thrive ...or are you doing what you need to do just to survive?

We are the only creature on the planet that can change our lot in life..a rose will always be a rose...a tree can be  a tree...but we have the ability and potential to do so much more.

Is your attitude toward learning what you need to learn in order to achieve what you want to achieve one of... Woohoo or is it more like meh... whatever.

Is your attitude like the straw house that crumbles when challangess arrive and leave you vulnerable?

What is your attitude toward taking action?

I’ll do it later (yip guilty), procrastination ain’t the thief of time its the thief of life,

Why do we do this? Is it because we are lazy? To a degree yes

But the simple truth is that our fears at times old us back from doing what we know we should do…fear of success…fear of failure...fear of loss...fear of pain. Our fearful attitude!

The 3 little piggies used fear as a motivator, they didn't have to think about they just did it, their attitude was good, act or be eaten. 

What we accomplish or fail to accomplish is largely due to our attitude, change your attitude change your actions.

What is your attitude toward failure?

If you haven't figured it out by now...each house represents a different attitude, and the big bad wolf represents life's problems and challenges. 

The straw shack is a weak attitude, the big bad wolf comes along and sneezes and blows up your weak as house down.

What did Tom  do?  (the pig) did he stand there waiting to get munched on?... Hell No he got the hell outta there ran to his brothers Dicks house (the other pig). 

Dicks stick house is an alright attitude, but Big Bad Wolf comes along huffs and puffs and Boom blows your house up.

Tom and Dick don't wait around they're action takers, they outta there off to Harry's house (big brother pig).

Harry's crib the brick house is a solid... strong...positive attitude that can withstand the slings and arrow and the huffs and puffs that of the Big Bad Wolf (life's up and downs)

Even when Big Bad Wolf tried to do a Santa Claus and sneak in through the chimney the boys put their heads together came up with a solution and cooked his ass...

Each successive failure lead to a new opportunity and forced them to take action and each step strengthened each others resolve showing the willingness to pivot change adapt to any challenge that came their way.

This is a reflection of their attitude toward failure...They had an awesome attitude!

Failure is not the end it is only the beginning, it's your attitude toward failure and how you cope with life's constant challenges that will determine your destiny.

What is your attitude toward others?

Your current circumstances is a reflection of your attitude, if you want to change your life change your attitude.

Tom Dick and Harry learned through trial and error that the only way to make it in this world is with help from others, and the only way people will go out of their way to help you is your attitude toward them.

How you treat people is a reflection of your attitude towards people.

People can pick up your vibe, weather you are genuine or fake sincere or just out to use them to get  what you want... we ain't stupid, and this vibration is a reflection of your attitude toward others.

You can have the best attitude in the world, but you can only make it so far alone you have to ask for help, name me one successful person who made it on their own bet you can't!

Just like the 3 little piggies they had a support group, a mastermind group.

From building a business to losing weight...climbing a mount to personal development we all need help.

"seek and you will find...knock and the door shall be opened...ask and you will  receive"

What is you attitude toward success

Many successful people in all walks of life from mothers to magnates..business owners to politicians…entrepreneurs to employees, and yes the 3 little piggies have all adopted the attitude that they can achieve whatever they set out to do.

They have a healthy attitude about themselves, a positive attitude toward change, a good attitude toward others and a positive attitude toward life in general and as a result they achieve remarkable things.

The thing is they are no more brilliant remarkable or outstanding than you or I, they are ordinary  people doing little things constantly and over time that product extraordinary results.

And the one thing all successful people have made a habit of is developing... maintaining and nurturing the right attitudes...."A Positive Mental Attitude Toward Life"

Have a Great and Remember..."You have Greatness Within You"...Les Brown.

The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

The Power of Your Subconscious

Why is the subconscious mind?

It is the subjective part of your mind that accepts as truth whatever you tell it.

Mama said..."life is like a box of chocolates"...Forrest Gump.

Just like Forrest's famous words "Mama said" we have been programed by those we hold dearest, people we love, trust and respect the most, and more than likely we defend our beliefs with a vengeance.

As a result your subconscious or subjective mind has deeply entrenched programming and conditioning that becomes an intricate part of your reality a part of your personality.

Your Family... Friends... Teachers... Preaches whoever, have played a major part in moulding your belief system.

They install their beliefs and ideologies into your subconscious mind...which is much like installing an operating system or program on to your computer , the issue is you have downloaded their operating system and their instructions and their interpretation of reality into your mind.

Which means anytime you try something new or try to install a new program... chances are your internal programing is blocking you from running this new operating system.

Everything you are taught gets stored into your subconscious mind by default, their beliefs become your beliefs...their ideologies become yours, kinda like a clone... you clone their beliefs, you adopt their ideologies.

And if their views are not in alinement with the goals you are trying to achieve...

You will fail and you will revert back to your pre-programed conditioning or the dominant force actuating your mind (your old programming). 

The thing is we didn't choose our programing and it may not have been intentional or malicious, we were young and impressionable.

But your not a child anymore, you can't use that excuse any more.

Mama said..."sometimes to move forward you have to leave the past behind"...Forrest 

The good news is you can change your programming...Ctrl...Alt and Del then Insert

Ctrl = Control

Our subconscious mind is so powerful, it holds the keys to the kingdom, it is an obedient slave and will believe whatever you command it to believe...

Control what you feed your mind.

Today we are drowning in information and starved for wisdom.

With the rise of social media we are constantly bombarded with information, from facebook to instagram... youtube to google...

But is this information related to what you are trying to achieve, will it help or hinder your progress?

What you watch read or hear over time seeps into your subconscious mind and becomes your reality, this is why it is so important to control what watch read and who you hang out with.

Be careful what you allow into your mind, who you listen to what you read what you watch otherwise you get conflicting information that cause unnecessary overload. 

Be the Guardian at the gates of your mind...

Alt=Alter

Our subconscious mind is so powerful, it holds the keys to the kingdom, it is an obedient slave and will  do whatever you command it to do...

Altering your perception, will change your reality.

How? How do change your perception?

One  way to alter your internal programming is by inputting your own commands and easiest and most effective way is self-talk.

We all talk to ourselves all the time on a subconscious level anyway weather your driving walking or working.

So why not control what you say to yourself...what you say to yourself over and over again with enough emotional intensity will alter your programming and update your operating system.

Say it out loud or in your mind either way do what you feel comfortable with...warning some people might think your nuts... lol but who cares what people think.

Affirmations...Incantations or Prayers stated it in the present tense with enough emotional intensity..I am... I will... I must, will alter your subconscious mind.

Del=Delete

Your subconscious mind is so powerful, it holds the keys to the kingdom, it is an obedient slave and will  believe whatever you command it to believe...

You know that not all we were taught is wrong or out of date, somethings we know are timeless principles.

Like the golden rule " do unto others as you would have them do unto you" translation...treat others how you want to be treated.

Well Mama said..."sometimes we do things that don't make no sense"

Ain't that the truth. at times we do things that don't make no sense and we believe things that no longer make no sense.

You need to identify limiting beliefs that no longer serve you like... I'm too old or I'm too young or I'm too fat or your too fugly...lol identify whatever it is that's holding you back.

It will be such a relief once you identify the source and let it go, it like a heavy weight you have been carrying around for years is suddenly gone.

Identify it... delete it and replace it, because if you don't replace it, the vacuum you've created will be filled with something else by default. 

Insert=Replace

My subconscious mind is so powerful, it holds the keys to the kingdom, it is an obedient slave and will  believe whatever you command it to believe...

There are so many tools available today that can help you reprogram yourself.

Self-talk... affirmations... incantations...the gift of prayer...these give you the ability to replace limiting beliefs in your subconscious.

Visualization...the power to see with your mind's eye what is possible.

The Law of Vibration...the primary law behind the law of attraction.

Meditation...the ability to clear your mind and contemplate your life's purpose and relax your whole being.

Finally developing the attitude of gratitude...be grateful for what you already have.

These are the tools I use everyday to maintain and update my subconscious mind. They are not my teachings nor are new... but are timeless and they work.

Relax and take the time to enjoy the exercise and have fun doing it and once again repetition is the key.

Million of people today live lives of quiet desperation not know they hold the key within them to make massive changes in their lives.

"I believe you have greatness in you...but only you can bring it forth"

Peace...Marty

Life is to be Lived

Life is About Living

Most of us go through life thinking we have all the time in the world…we think I’ll do it tomorrow…Ill catch up with my family tomorrow, I’ll visit my friend tomorrow, I’ll tell my children I love them tomorrow…

What if something drastic happens, something unthinkable, what then?

I was meant to go fishing with a friend a while ago, I was busy so I put it off… “next time bro sweet”... the very next week he passed away, I’ll never see my friend again…man if only…

I have been to quite a few funnels this year, and have lost quite a few family and friends…

I was talking to a friend asking how one of our mates was…to my shock he passed way 10 years ago, this dude was fit as…a real health nut Mr Oceania… ate right, worked out every day did all the right stuff…Wow I was blown away.

As I was walking around the cemetery on the way to visit my Father (whom I miss very much)… I couldn’t believe the amount of people I knew that had passed on.

The funeral I was at, was my friend who had lost his Mother…2 weeks later he lost his Dad, it was heartbreaking.

It's hard to put into words the pain and anguish the deep despair you feel when you lose someone you love it leave a hole in your heart forever…

The same month another dear friend lost her son…

Every parents worst nightmare…

I couldn’t possibly imagine the pain and anguish she suffers every day…my heart goes out you my friend.

They say time heals the pain…rubbish absolute rubbish.

Time helps you cope with the pain, but it that pain remains forever.

On that day I realized…my problems aren’t that bad, it changed my view on things… about my life.

I was worried about my computer cashing, my phone freezing, my washing machine blowing up, my car playing up…

Now realize that stuff ain’t even important. I have my health my Mother is still with us, my children are healthy my sisters are well my friends are awesome and so much more.  

Life is about living…being with the ones you love…taking time just to hang out smell the roses, enjoy it while you still can living for the day!

At times we forget to appreciating the little things, giving thanks for our blessings, being grateful for those we love and those who love us.

I am practicing the art of appreciating of the little things, walking up in the morning for one thing, my family my friends this wonderful country we live in.

I am thankful for the life that I have. The things I tend to take for granted.

We have got to begin to learn to be thankful for the little things, and start living and enjoying life Now.

Don’t waste another moment go and tell some you love… you love them, give them a hug send them a text, write them a letter do something before it to late.

God bless, and may you have a wonderful life.

Personal Development

What is Personal Development?

First of all its personal you own it, second you are developing something inside you that already exists...transforming a certain area in your life, an area you want to change improve or growing, while becoming a better at person on the way.

It means investing Your time and Your energy into Your life!

You have come to a point in your life when you are no longer satisfied... you've had it...that's it I'm over this crap...I'm Going To Change...I Want To Change...I Will Change!!!

If it's to be it's up to ME!!!

It means that you are ready to take responsibility for your life, own it!

You are ready to be responsible for your own Health Wealth and Happiness.

It means you’re ready to take charge of your life be proactive and take action! instead of being a spectator on the sideline watching your life pass you by. 

Contrary to popular belief you only get one shot at life (my opinion) , why risk or waste it like the masses who leave it up to chance like the ebbs and flow of the stream, or the go with the flow mentality on the seas of life like a ship without a rudder or a destination eventually you will end up shipwrecked on the rocks of life stranded on a deserted island wondering what the hell went wrong?

You Make The Decision  

You must decide to design your own life, creating your own destiny, walking your own path.

"It's the decision we make that determine your destiny" Tony Robbins

You want to create a plan unique to you... you know yourself better than anyone else.

Start a journal or create a checklist to help you keep track of your progress.

Here’s an sample checklist:

Health—what changes do you need to make?

Mental –what can you do to increase your knowledge/ intelligence?

Emotions—how to reduce stress and manage emotional states?

Spiritual—consider meditation or your own spiritual journey

Financial--how much do you need to be set for life?

So, after you’ve done this create a plan and maybe a checklist.

Be specific, set small goals, set deadlines, be flexible 

Like anything new it takes earnest effort... persistence... resilience to effect lasting change, and heaps of research teaches us that it takes 21 day to install a new habit...so learn something new...have fun while doing it and play to win... and Never Give Up!

Study at The Feet of a Master.

We all need help, no matter want you want to achieve, and the best way is to ask.

When Bruce Lee ( one of the best martial artist ever ) was young he studied at the feet of at The Master (Ipman), not just any teacher someone who had mastered the art over years of practise... practise... practise. Then when he meet with defeat he study other masters or other masters styles and techniques, he wanted to simplify the martial arts combine the best of all and get rid of complicate forms that served no real purpose it a real fight.

The key is to keep it simple... have fun... enjoy what you are learning... apply what you learn and play to win.

Million of people today study at the feet of the Master of personal change...

Tony Robbins... Tony is the man (my opinion) many successful people still consult with him today...Why?... because he's a Master in this arena.

Tony has technologies and techniques that can change a person in an instant... he defied conventional NLP practitioners from day one and has decades of proof under his belt...love him or hate there's no denying he know his stuff. 

Even Tony had a Master he studied under Jim Rohn, yes every Master has a Master..

We have had so many Masters over the centuries... Napoleon Hill (the original)..Dale Carnegie...W Clement Stone... Og Mandino...Modern day Masters such as...Zig Ziglar..Bob Proctor..Les Brown(I love Les his laugh...) and New age Masters such as...Oprah...Ellen...Lisa Nichols...Molly Fletcher...Jay Shetty the list goes on, find someone that resonates with you, some you have that connection with, someone you like and get to work. 

Personal development or growth is an ongoing process its continuous never stops, you can never know everything, so the more you learn the more you grow.

You are the Master of Your Destiny!!!

What are the benefits? 

Once you develop a routine and integrate into your life you may experience :

A Life with More Meaning and Purpose

A Sense of Accomplishment

A Happier / Healthier You

An Attitude of Gratitude 

More Self-confidence

More Self-belief

A More Focused Life

A More Balanced Life

More Possibilities 

And Peace of Mind

There are so many more positive advantages of developing you...you will notice these these changes in yourself after you start your journey down the road to personal development.

Remember..Invest in yourself, its time well spent!

Have a Great Day...Peace.
